    " What can you say about Tennessee Williams. The writer's writer. But am I a writer's reader? I have to admit this small novel was a bit of work for me. But what an experience to look into his mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 2/6/2012

    " A wonderful story filled with aviary metaphor about an aging actress fled to Rome. Drifting toward forgetting in a cloudy chiffon of American abroad make-believe . Her apartment overlooks the Spanish steps. Below walks and wags masculine sex... "

    " Just a little book but beautifully written. Williams captures the angst of Mrs Stone as she deals with widowhood, her retirement from the stage and a much younger Italian lover. Really worth reading. "
